Who's That Girl Monday-and a TEASER!!

Hello, everyone! It is time for another My Favorite Thing release and this month there are four sets that are TO DIE FOR!! I had so much fun creating with these sets that I stamped until the wee hours of the morning last night...I am exhausted today but it was so worth it!! For my peek today, I decided to also play in the Who's That Girl Monday Challenge. This week Joanne and Christina have a challenge I(and they) think you'll love! (these are their words exactly, why rewrite perfection right!!) Why, you ask? Well, because it's a wild card -- YOU get to choose and use your favorite Who's That Girl set! The challenge, however, is this: Use the MFT Colors (black, pink, and white)!Use keyword MFTWTG33 when uploading. Upload your creations by midnight Wednesday, 5/6 for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to My Favorite Things!

Since we could chose our favorite, I decided on my NEW favorite, Girl's Day In. I am LOVING this set, seriously!! For my card, I used this past Friday's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I paper pieced the chair with some SU DSP(seriously, can't remember the name of it and I am no where near a catalog...don't worry, one of my lovely friends will tell me, lol!!). The rest of the image was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored with my Copics. After coloring, I added some Crystal Effects to the wine glass to make it shiny!! I used more of the DSP in the background and layered it with Regal Rose and Basic Black. The ribbon is also from MFT, and the brads are from SU. Isn't she lovely!!
Well, that is it for me now!! If you wanna see more creations for this challenge, here is the link to the MFTWTG33 Gallery!!

LPS Monday: Flowers for Julia!

Today(well it isn't today, but the party is) is Julia's, owner of the Little Paper Shop, birthday, so we are having a hop to celebrate!! Happy Happy Birthday Julia!! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to work with you all...hope your day is fabulous!! The hop started at Jessica's blog, so if you are just getting here, head back there to get started. When you get here, you should have come from Bonnie's blog!! Also, since today is Monday, that means it is time for another Little Paper Shop blog challenge as well!! Here are all the details!!

April showers bring May flowers, right? That's what I think! So this week's LPS Monday challenge is to simply use ANY LPS stamp set (if you have one, if not, any stamp will do) and incorporate FLOWERS on your card.One lucky winner will be chosen randomly to win a FREE digital image from the Little Paper Shop! All you have to do is leave a comment on today's post(on the Little Paper Shop Blog) telling us you've played along and you'll be entered to win!When you upload your creation to SCS or PCP, be sure to use keyword LPSC14. Thanks for playing and think Spring with this Fresh floral challenge! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Okay, onto the fun stuff!! For my card today, I used my FAVORITE Digi Image, Katie Swing, along with the new set, Growing Old. I know that the set is supposed to be used with the "older" images, but I just love mixing them up with these cute little girlie images!! My color combo is Rose Red, So Saffron, and Old Olive. I was inspired to use these colors by my SU DSP, Junior Varsity. The ribbons are both from SU, the flowers are from Michael's, and the dew drops are by Robins Nest. I colored my image with my Copic markers. I also used Taylor's Cupcake Sketch from this past Friday.

Well, that is it for me now, next stop on the hop is Allison, so head on out to her blog!! Thanks for stopping by!!
